Ethos and Vision

Together we will build a fun, safe and caring school that promotes the joy of learning, high personal achievement, respect for individual differences, dignity for all and equal opportunities by eliminating discrimination.

We will provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, engaging and interesting, focused on the individual needs of each pupil and able to develop academic, functional, vocational and creative skills.

We will nurture, encourage and listen to every voice in our community, including pupils, parents and carers, friends and staff. Maximising the potential of every pupil will be placed at the heart of all decision making.

All young people will be valued for their individual contributions and their talents celebrated.

We will support all pupils to leave as confident and independent individuals, armed with the necessary skills to ensure that they can advocate effectively for themselves.
We will support pupils to pursue their ambitions, attain full social inclusion and achieve a high quality of life.

Our Vision

To work with students, families and the community to provide a caring and collaborative environment that engages, inspires and challenges. To ensure everyone is valued and respected to achieve personal success.

Our Values

We will:
• Have the highest standards and expectations for success
• Ensure mutual respect for every person connected with the school
• Be honest, open and continuously communicate with pupils, families and staff
• Always be a strong advocate for Carew Academy – be proud of our school and Trust
• Recognise, develop and reward the skills of all associated with the school

 

 

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
